Houston and Seattle look to close their series out on a winning note Sunday afternoon.
Astros took game 1 and hoping to take game 3 as well. They have won 6 of their last 8 games.
The Mariners have been struggling and have lost 6 of their last 8 games.
Collin McHugh has a 5-6 record with a 4.50 ERA and 1.46 WHIP.
Mike Montgomery is 3-3 with a 2.06 ERA and 1.02 WHIP.
The Astros have scored 36 runs in their last 7 games, which is just over 5 runs per game.
They’ve demonstrated consistently strong offense for a couple months now and has seen their runs per game rise to 4.5.
They are in the middle of the pack when it comes to season averages relative to the MLB but they are much better than their season stats appear.
McHugh has been pitching a bit better than his ERA suggests over the last month.
Since June 15th, he’s had 5 outings, 4 of which he’s given up just 2 or less runs.
His most recent outing he gave up 4 over 6 innings against the A’s.
The Mariners have scored just 20 runs over their last 5 games, this is almost 1 run less per game compared to their season average of 4.9.
They will be looking to turn their bats around against McHugh in this one.
They have the 2nd most homers in the league with 132 so this offense is always extremely dangerous.
Montgomery has been outstanding and in his only 2 starts of the season, he’s given up just 1 run over 10.1 innings.
He pitched 4 shutout innings against the Astros on July 5th.
He’ll look to continue his dominance in this one.

Free Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Offensively the teams are pretty even right now, although the Mariners aren’t scoring as much as they can, it isn’t a full on slump they are going through and against the right pitcher, they can dominate.
Pitching matchup goes to the Mariners in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Mariners ML
I think the Mariners will get to McHugh in this one and put up at least 5 runs by the end of this game.
The Astros will have a hard time generating anything against Montgomery and will have to hope they get to their bullpen to generate anything.
